The accused financed the evasion of Joaquín Guzmán.

The presumed financial operator from a criminal group which operates north of the country has been sent to prison for supposedly financing the escape of Joaquín "El Chapo" Guzmán from the maximum security jail of El Altiplano last July 11.

According to the Office of the Attorney General (PGR), the subject in question is accused of operations with illegal proceeds and will be sent to the very same prison from which "El Chapo" escaped.

The subject, whose identity has not being revealed, was arrested on August 19 by the Federal Police in San Pedro Cholula, Puebla, in possession of a firearm.
